recently, sarah palin on her facebook page friday night said that the america i know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with down syndrome will have to stand in front of obama's death panel so that his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their level of productivity in society, whether they are worthy of health care. such a system is downright evil. as you node, president called that outland issue? >> why don't they put that up -- >> he's not the chief adviser. he's written three articles from 1996 and 2008 that include some of those phrases. >> the standards. >> those phases up here nowhere in the bill. let me respond to what's in the bill. the only thing in the bill would allow medicare to pay for what they say is voluntary counseling on end-of-life issues. >> i think people are very concerned when you start talking about cost controls that a bureaucracy -- you're asking to us trust the government. now, i'm not talking about the obama administration. but the government. you're asking us to decide that we believe that the government is to be trusted.

and be part of it? or do they want this country, the united states of america, to go another several decades without doing what every other country has done, which is to give their citizens access to basic quality care. >> but if the republicans can't come to an agreement with the democrats, are the democrats and the white house willing to do it alone? >> george, we're going to try to get this done on the best possible terms, consistent with the principles. can't tell you what it's going to take. you see what the president is trying 0 to do that. >> let me ask you about t.a.r.p. the inspector said that the taxpayers can be on the hook for up to $23 trillion on lienlts. i know you dispute that figure. but what you can tell us about where the t.a.r.p. stands right now? and how much of the $700 billion that has been appropriated, taxpayers can expect to get back? >> let me just emphasize what's important to mr. barofsky and to the other members of the panel and the president and the other members. we want to make sure we have the highest level on these programs. and we're doing everythi

in america. on guantanamo, i share the same goal. but i wouldn't -- again, they have not had an overall policy developed, which should have come first. but in that, i think, has caused some difficulty. >> i talked to people in the administration. they say, wait a second. john mccain even voted against secretary sebelius for health and human services secretary. judge sotomayor. >> well, all i can say is i used my best judgment. i consider myself the loyal opposition. that is, loyal to the president where i can be. and in opposition, where we have fundamental disagreements. and i look forward to working with the president on a number of issues. and i will continue to try to do so. >> let me bring up one other. you just talked about the deficit. we just learned today, the administration's saying, that over the next ten years, the deficit will be $2 trillion higher than they thought. $9 trillion. i spoke with secretary -- treasury secretary geithner just a couple of weeks ago. and he pledged that this administration would do whatever it takes to get that deficit down over the long r

who in america gets coverage and who doesn't. making sure the bill doesn't add to our deficit. those are fundamental principals. i hope this element is part of it, it's something that people talk to me all about. as i have said, i have been through it personally with a mother who was very ill at the end of her life and just having that kind of conversation, and consultation, whicwe finally did, but it was weeks into her hospitalization that the conversation took place. it was very helpful, would have been a lot more helpful if it taken place weeks earlier. >> we'll move on. the president, often, last nate in colorado, says to the american people if they like their doctor, they can keep their doctor. if they like their insurance plan, they can keep their insurance plan. but according to the congressional budget office, if a public plan, a public option is introduced, at least 2 million americans will be switched by their employer from a private plan to the public plan. now, that doesn't get into the whole issue of employers dropping health care coverage in general. how can the adminis

really representative of america. in my opinion. we have to be careful here. not to let those town meetings dominate the scene. and influence what we do on health policy. there are a number of issues here. one is that, while they're organized and have a right to be organized, as john podesta has pointed out, there's a real effort here to make this is the president's waterloo, that was stated specifically by a senator. we can't allow these town hall meetings dominate the political process. that would be destructive of what we need to do to figure out what was the best approach. >> senator hatch, former alaska governor sarah palin referred to provision in the house bill as a death panel, your colleague, alaskan lisa mcclosekie said this. >> it does us no good to incite fear in people. by saying that, you know, there's an end of life provisions, these death panels, quite honestly, i'm so offended by that terminology. because it absolutely isn't. >> who's right. governor palin or senator murkowski? >> i don't think i'm going to make that decision. there are many people who have many di
